Two in morning and…

It’s two in morning and I can’t sleep.
Today we moved part of Hyzonia, essentially its Core and global services to a new server. Finally. It’s a Windows 2008, and I quite surprised how smooth this transition was, so far.

I’m trying to stimulate! the moods in the company. I’m trying to be more passionate, talk and make people talk more. The goal is to make most of everybody’s intelligence. Everyone should feel she has an effect on business decisions. I don’t need man power, I need mind power. It requires quite a force to shake this high inertia, change opposing company. I’m relaxing many rules, and I’m handing over many decision making tasks to my team. We gotta be a team that play together with our minds not our muscles. I’m already seeing some results and I expect to observe a measurable improvement in a matter of few weeks. We are starting new exciting projects, some of them are just show-offs (read it releases) and some are absolutely new crazy wild ideas.

Sometime I feel I’ve lost much of my passions, but I’m trying hard to prove it’s a wrong, evil feeling. Most of all Richard Dawkins is helping me to remember I supposed to be more a scientist than a boring business man.

My team is energized since we got somebody in NetAd to work with our game customization API. Back in two week ago I was arguing that the whole customization API was a waste of time, I was thinking nobody will use it and eventually it would be our job to customize the games. I’m happy (indeed) that I was wrong. And you know there’s nothing more funnier, more relaxing than being happy because you were wrong.

Anyway, we launched HyzoGames that contains some samples of the customized games. We’re trying to keep Hyzonia Twitter account active. So if you care, follow us there. 🙂

No, I can’t take it anymore, ‘night!

Hmm, Thanks for these awards I have cool subjects to post.

It’s a few days I’m receiving e-mails from a girl, saying we both were going to the same kindergarten 🙂 My mom was working there. I enjoyed the conversation so far, it’s interesting to find a person who seems to know you after years, whilst you remember nothing at all.

I had time to watch some shows of American Idol today, comparing to the last year I totally missed it, and not surprisingly I found myself a fan of Adam.

I am getting worried about the path the business people are taking in our company, in many ways I am completely in disagreement with them. This week I have to concentrate to bring some changes to the company business. Actually I started by changing the layout (physical!) of my department; we changed the position of tables, we bought a whiteboard and for the first time I have a well-defined schedule covering all the days till the end of the week. But still I have to force the business to take a look at the state and the way they are taking from an outsider perspective. For me it’s very wrong, I have to fix it.

How we are wasting personnel time

Posted in Company by Homam Hosseini on March 9, 2009

It’s a few week most of the company’s personnel (of course except me) have almost nothing to do in their daily schedule. I really don’t like it, I believe they could be very useful handling many long overdue jobs, but there’s not much things I can do when bosses themselves are away and just come to the office one-day a week or so. This is not a position I expected our company to be a few months after (a more formal) establishment, I know it must be fixed and much like any other thing that should be fixed in our lives, it could not be fixed by anyone other than me. I wish and I hope to find someone who could help me reducing some of my to-dos so I could focus more on such these issues.
